DART Ridership Plummets to Lowest Level in Years

View Comments ()



    DART says fewer people are riding on buses and light rail.

    The Dallas Morning News reports that ridership on DART's light rail service dropped almost 6 percent in 2010 to its lowest level since 2005.

    Rides on DARTs buses dropped almost 10 percent, the lowest level in a decade.

    The agency blames the recession and highter ticket prices for the decline.

    DART does expect a rebound in 2011, thanks to the new Green Line.
